I have grown this cultivar and it can be beautiful and a vigorous grower. It has very colorful leaf margins and good resistance to diseases and pests. It is unique in that it continues growing year-round without taking the break common to most echeverias.

I have had the worst time with this one. It is the least hardy of all my echeverias. I knick named it goldie locks. It needs just the right amount of sun and water with no room for error. Porridge is to hot it gets mealy bugs. Bed to big it gets mealy bugs. Chair to......... you can see where I am going with this. For me dappled bright shade has worked the best. I just do not consider this a vigorous plant and was wondering if it is still doing well for you? It does pup a lot so I keep giving it a go. I have to say though that of all the echeverias I have owned this one is my problematic child.

I am not currently growing it. I agree that it's a tricky one. Keep me posted on how yours is doing.
I garden for the pollinators.
